SRF supporters, thank you for going above and beyond with your generosity, especially at the end of such a difficult year. Your commitment to helping SRF #UnlockLongevity brought in $2,355,443.46 – more than doubling our end of year campaign fundraising goal of $1M!
Special thanks to Michael Antonov, Brendan Iribe, Karl Pfleger, Jim Mellon, Cameron Bloomer, Dave Fisher, Christophe Cornuejols, Didier Coeurnelle, and Larry Levinson for their matching grants during the campaign, as well as to all of you who donated at every level.
Your support means SRF can hit the ground running as we start 2021, with exciting research progress, facility upgrades, and more on the horizon. It means so much to us to have a community behind us that truly shares our vision of a world free of age-related disease, and is willing to help do what it takes to make such a world a reality sooner rather than later.
Thanks to a generous matching challenge by Oculus co-founder Michael Antonov, up to $600,000 donated before the end of 2020 will be doubled!

A team of SRF supporters – including Brendan Iribe, Karl Pfleger, Ronny Hatteland, Jim Mellon, Cameron Bloomer, Dave Fisher, Christophe Cornuejols, Didier Coeurnelle and Larry Levinson – have joined forces to offer a further $525,000 matching grant.
This pool of funds runs in parallel to Michael’s challenge, which means the next $525,000 donated will be tripled!
2020 brought unprecedented challenges as a pandemic swept the globe, leaving more than a million dead and others isolated and fearful in their homes. Through all the updates on the sick and the dead, on testing and public health guidance, one constant remains: by far the greatest predictor of death from COVID-19 is age. Most of the co-morbidities that drive COVID severity are pathologies of aging.
Flattening the “demographic curve” of degenerative aging would reduce the impact of COVID-19 to roughly that of an average recent flu season, while also reducing the staggering toll of age-related disease and death that continues to inflict suffering on humankind.
Ending that toll is our mission. At SENS Research Foundation, we develop rejuvenation biotechnologies: new therapies that will repair the accumulated cellular and molecular damage in our tissues and restore youthful function.
As we reflect on the past year, we’re particularly grateful to the many donors whose steadfast commitment to our work endured through economic uncertainty, to those who have become SRF Patrons by pledging to support us with recurring donations, and to the new donors who have joined our cause. You’ve provided a steady income stream allowing SRF to continue to fight age-related disease during the uncertainty of 2020. We appreciate you more than we can say. We know you share our vision and passion for extending healthy lifespans.
With your support, we funded research establishing systems that may accelerate progress toward novel therapies against COVID-19 as well as lung and brain aging.
With your support, we explored ways to address dementia by rejuvenating the neocortex.
With your support, we fight hard to reverse aging by sponsoring research, educating new scientists, and providing outreach to the public and industry partners.
With your support, we are adding a vivarium (mouse house) to our Research Center to enhance our research.
With your support, we can break free of age-related disease.
With your support, we can #UnlockLongevity together.
SENS Research Foundation’s 2020 End of Year Fundraising Campaign ran through December 31st.
In light of the tremendous support offered by our matching donors,

help us raise $1,000,000 by December 31st, 2020.
